Whead, Recheck the wires to the element. from each wire to chassis ground there should be 120 VAC, re attach the wires to the element and recheck for 240 VAC across the wires. If the voltages are correct, then the heater element is at fault.

Part number: AP4201899

It may have a resistance reading, but it can't "carry" the load (voltage).
Thanks for allowing to assist you,
